In order to control the spread of COVID-19, the whole island of Luzon was placed under Enhanced Community Quarantine. This was done by putting checkpoints in key strategic locations. Some of the checkpoints are unprepared, undermanned and lacking logistical support. Philippine Red Cross – Cavite Chapter supports the front-liners of major checkpoints by providing Food Items (e.g. bottled water & loaf bread), Hygiene Kits (e.g. toothpaste & soap) and Personal Protective Equipment (N-88 face mask).
